CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--HCB Health, one of the country’s leading healthcare advertising agencies, announced the promotion of Nick Rambke to senior vice president, managing director, HCB Health Chicago. Rambke joined HCB Health Chicago in February of 2016 as vice president, group account director.
In 2015, Austin-based HCB Health expanded to Chicago by acquiring Topin & Associates, Inc. to increase their presence in the pharmaceutical advertising market. After Al Topin, president, HCB Health Chicago, retires at the end of 2017, Rambke will succeed him to maintain leadership within the agency’s Chicago location.
“In some ways, this is just a formality as Nick (Rambke) has proven himself time after time to be a true leader,” said HCB Health CEO, Kerry Hilton. “Our growth at HCB Health Chicago has been directly impacted by Nick’s passion for the industry, his insights for our clients and the respect he gives to our people.”
In his previous role, Rambke drew from his extensive pharmaceutical promotional experience to gather insights, determine a brand’s optimal selling proposition and formulate strategies to ensure success. He will now be responsible for the health, growth and profitability of HCB Health’s Chicago office.
“I am striving for HCB to be the destination for passionate brand builders in healthcare and pharma,” said Rambke. “Our culture puts the brand first — success follows when we focus on what is truly important to our staff and clients.”
